What's Nippon-Yasan? Anyway, why such a huge difference in price?

Knight-of-Gold 2013-09-28 10:29

Well Bandai quotes a price of 1500 yen for each of them.
Their "value" depends on who wants them.

Nippon-yasan.com. Fix'd it. A online-shop I recently discovered.

Yea. True.
I have a friend in Japan and I had asked if he could get me the 2. He sent it EMS and it arrived Express yesterday along with a bunch of other goodies in the big box. I sometimes send him stuff from the US that's more expensive being sold in Japan.

I'm not too sure if I want to keep it or sell it. >_<
I'm pretty sure if I sold it, it'd be sold on eBay and I could make a big profit.

My long-awaited pre-order, Option Parts for the RD Extreme Gundam, came in today and... well, "huge" in an understatement in this case:

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)
Problem now is, I gotta re-arrange my items if I'm going to fit this guy in. Granted, the wings can be folded but still... :heh:

Usually, exclusive item's box looks awful, but AGE-2 SP's box looks nice with the added Asemu pic despite being monochrome :).

I have to wait a bit if I want to get it. The seller I know that can offer reasonable price for exclusive items takes more time than others, but it's worth the wait ;). Oh, and I think the yellow (or should I say creamy?) color looks nicer than the usual yellow or grey. Granted, I'm a sucker for unique colors :heh:.

Damn! :eek: That looks F***ing epic!

It looks super-busy, but still elegant, unlike Perfect Strike :heh:.

What can I expect from RG's compared to MG's...?

Small parts. Lots of them

How is the color separation compared to like HGs? Also, I hear those shiny foil stickers aren't worth it; like the copper color ones that go on the arms and legs, and whatnot.

Are these basically MG quality kits in 1/144 scale?

If you are that unsure about RGs, why did you order so many? :eyebrow:

Anyway, color seperation ist great. I tend to leave the stickers off the kit, I only put the eyes and camera stickers on

I think I'm gonna do what I do with my MG's.

Straight Build, cleaning up parts as I go, paint the clear parts using my Tamiya clear paints. =)

No stickers, no decals, some panel lining with Real Touch markers.

Why did I order so many?

1. I was bored and wanted something to build. HG, SD...Not my thing. Already have all the MG's I want at my house or coming in the mail within the next few weeks.

2. People have been saying that my MG only policy is dumb and I should at least try RG kits since they're good.

So my thinking was aside from UC kits, the only line of RG is Seed/Destiny so far.

So what I ended up getting:

RG Aile Strike x4
RG Skygrasper
RG Aile Strike Rouge
RG Freedom
RG Strike Freedom + Wings
RG Destiny + Wings
RG Justice

Freedom has loose arms. Mine can't really hold the shild on its arm and I don't even bother with the beam rifle

:eyespin:
Maybe it's just yours. An MG Freedom RM Ver. along side MG Justice would do Seed fans something to eat. Hopefully 2014 release? When do we get word of 2014 kits?

Its not just mine, I saw it in different reviews over the net

I'll have to keep that in mind.

You know how the MG Wing Proto Zero is a Ver. Ka twist on the TV design of the Wing Zero? Do you think maybe Bandai could do that for the regular Wing TV designs?

I like the EW line, but a 2.0 of the Wing EW and Wing Zero EW I think are not likely. And from the images, the MG Proto Zero is looking nice, especially next to the Epyon EW.

No, Bandai will not give TV versions the same design changes as Proto Wing Zero.
Proto wing Zero appears in the manga like that.
The other TV designs are unaffected.

2.0 of the Wing EW and Wing Zero EW MG's...Likely?
